  • Desjardins Capital Markets Picks Goldcorp for 2017

  • Newmont May Book up to $1.2 Billion to Shut Down Peru Mine

    Newmont Mining Corp.

  • Gabelli Funds Comments on Torex Gold

    Torex Gold (TSX:TGX) (2.5%) (TXG CN – $21.63 | $28.38 CAD – Toronto Stock Exchange) is a development company with a project in Guerrero, Mexico. The company recently completed construction of its Limon/Guajes project on time and on budget. Once at full commercial production, the company should produce over 300,000 ounces of gold per year at unit cash costs in the lower half of the cost curve. The company has a second deposit near its current operation which can be its second mine. In developing its second deposit, the company has the ability to double production to 600,000 ounces while funding development with free cash flow from its first mine.

  • Gabelli Funds Comments on Tahoe Resources

    Tahoe Resources (NYSE:TAHO) (3.0%) (THO – $12.82 | $16.82 CAD – Toronto Stock Exchange) owns the Escobal mine in Guatemala, one of the largest primary silver mines in the world. Tahoe also owns two assets in Peru. One is an operating mine and one is a development project. The combined company will be cash flow generative, and be able to finance the build of its next project with free cash flow from its two producing assets and cash on its balance sheet. The company recently completed the acquisition of Ontario-based Lakeshore Gold. Tahoe aims to expand Lakeshore’s mineral inventory through an aggressive exploration program. If successful, the company will likely expand plant capacity on site and grow production. Tahoe pays a dividend, and we expect this will increase if the prices of gold and silver rise.

  • Gabelli Funds Comments on Osisko Gold Royalties

    Osisko Gold Royalties (NYSE:OR) (0.7%) (OR CN – $10.95 | $14.36 CAD – Toronto Stock Exchange) is a Montreal based gold royalty company which owns royalties on the two largest gold mines in Quebec, namely the Malartic mine in the Abitibi region, and the Eleonore mine in the James Bay region of northern Quebec. Osisko has a cash balance and generates meaningful amounts of free cash flow through producing royalties. The company is deploying this cash in very early stage development deals whereby it is able to fund exploration and development of projects, primarily in Canada, in exchange for equity stakes in the development companies and the opportunity to finance mine development through acquiring future royalties on future mine development.

  • Gabelli Funds Comments on Northern Star Resources

    Northern Star Resources (ASX:NST) (1.7%) (NST – $3.57 | $4.66 AUD – Australian Stock Exchange) is a Western Australia based mining company with three primary operating mines in Western Australia. The company acquired operating mines in the region from Barrick Gold and Newmont Mining (3.6%) during the downturn in the cycle when these two companies were selling assets to pay down over-levered balance sheets. The company has been successful in reducing costs at these operations and extending mine lives through exploration. Northern Star is a meaningful free cash flow generative company at the current Aussie dollar gold price, and pays a dividend to shareholders.

  • Gabelli Funds Comments on MAG Silver

    MAG Silver (MAG) (1.6%) (MVG – $15.07 | $19.77 CAD – Toronto Stock Exchange) owns 44% of one of the highest quality silver deposits in the world. The Juanicipio project in Zacatecas, Mexico is adjacent to Fresnillo plc’s (7.1%), namesake silver mine. Having Fresnillo as the 56% majority partner and operator of the mine limits development risk for the asset, and should allow for the project to be financed with little trouble. Once operational, Juanicipio should be highly cash flow positive. A new discovery on the Juanicipio property has the potential to either extend the mine’s life or increase production at the project meaningfully.

  • Gabelli Funds Comments on Klondex Mines

    Klondex Mines (KLDX) (1.6%) (KDX – $5.75 | $7.54 CAD – Toronto Stock Exchange) is a mining company with two mines in Nevada and a development project in Manitoba. The company’s Fire Creek mine in Nevada is a high grade, small tonnage deposit. The Midas mine is near Fire Creek, and both mines feed a single processing facility near the Midas site. Klondex recently agreed to acquire a third property in Nevada called Hollister. Hollister could be a third source of feed for the centralized Nevada processing facility. All of the mines in Klondex’s portfolio are relatively short-life, and will require meaningful exploration spending to extend their lives. If exploration efforts are successful, Klondex will be a low cost producer with meaningful free cash flow generation at current gold prices.

  • Gabelli Funds Comments on Hochschild Mining

    Hochschild Mining (LSE:HOC) (2.5%) (HOC – $3.75 | £2.90 – London Stock Exchange), is a Peruvian based gold and silver miner. The company has one mine in Argentina and three mines in Peru. Hochschild are experts in mining high-grade underground vein systems. The company’s newest mine, Inmaculada in Peru, will be its biggest and most cash flow generative asset. As Inmaculada begins to produce over the coming months, the company will be able to use cash flow from the mine to pay down debt and explore around its sites. We expect excess cash to be distributed to shareholders in the form of a dividend.

  • Gabelli Funds Comments on Detour Gold

    Detour Gold (TSX:DGC) (3.7%) (DGC CN – $21.75 | $28.54 CAD – Toronto Stock Exchange), is a single asset company based in Toronto, with its sole operating mine in northern Ontario. The Detour Lake mine is a large, bulk tonnage open pit operation which is currently the biggest gold mine in Canada. The mine’s cost base is largely fixed, with labor and electricity being large components, both are priced in Canadian dollars. The company is generating free cash flow, and will use a portion of this cash to pay down convertible debt which will come due in 2017. We expect the company to pay dividends to shareholders once the balance sheet has been sorted.

  • Gabelli Funds Comments on Agnico-Eagle

    Agnico-Eagle (NYSE:AEM) (6.5%) (AEM CN – $54.08 | $70.95 CAD – Toronto Stock Exchange), is a mid-tier gold producer with operations in Canada, Mexico, and Finland. The company is the dominant operator in the Val d’Or region of Northern Quebec, and the only gold producer in the Canadian sub-Arctic region. The company is in the process of delineating a new discovery in the Arctic region which could serve to extend the life of its large Meadowbank mine. Agnico is also delineating a deposit in Mexico which could be its third mine in the country. The company has a strong balance sheet and low unit cash costs which should allow it to comfortably complete these new projects while continuing to return cash to shareholders in the form of a dividend.

  • Gabelli Funds Comments on Acacia Mining

    Acacia Mining (LSE:ACA) (1.6% of net assets as of September 30, 2016) (ACA – $6.45 | £4.98 – London Stock Exchange) is a London listed gold mining company with three mines in Tanzania. The company was formerly called African Barrick, and Barrick is still a large shareholder of Acacia. Acacia is in the process of transforming its two largest assets, the Bulyanhulu and North Mara mines. Bulyanhulu is beginning to mine higher grade material, and operating costs have been reduced at the mine, leading to higher production at lower unit costs. At North Mara, the company is beginning to mine an underground portion of the orebody. Currently a dividend paying stock, the amount of the dividend paid should increase as the company executes operationally.
